Subject: great audience recording / level off
Subject: Wish I could hear it straight through.
Subject: A Slice of History
Peace - Be Well All!!
Subject: Just stellar.
There is something really great about this recording, though...non-song related bonunses are: Excellent sound on the drums and great clarity overall. The mix is a little off, though: Drums kinda dominate Jerry's guitar sometimes, which is not good.
Also, you get radio interviews with Donna, Bobby, and Mickey...Mickey's tale of his Egyptian adventures is great.
Plus, Bobby does a lot of joking around in the first set...Overall, definitely worth a listen despite the flaws.
Subject: Vocals aside...
Subject: Jerry on and on
Rockin' with the Dead since '76!!!
Subject: Pretty Darn Immortal
An excellent point is made in an excellent review
of this show in the Taping Compendium - the less
Jerry sings, the more he plays his guitar.
And that's a very good thing. Jerry could infuse
great soul and feeling in his voice, but so far as
technical considerations go, I think it was Guitar Player Magazine who infamously labelled him
as one of the all-time great bad singers of rock and roll. Or words to that effect.
His suffering is our gain on this one.
